INDIA PRIDE AWARDS
Ever since Indian independence, the PSU sector has invested in the progress of the nation at an unparalleled scale. Partnering India’s development at every step. Enabling the country to become one of the world’s rising economic giants.
This spirit of commitment and perseverance is something we deeply admire. And so, the Dainik Bhaskar Group conceived and instituted the India Pride Awards – a unique tribute to the Public Sector Undertakings (PSUs) that applauds and celebrates their immense contributions towards nation-building.
The award selection process is a rigorous one, with a regular re-calibration of every nomination against the analysis and rating of ICRA (our Knowledge Partners). The award ceremonies have been graced by the presence of many dignitaries including Dr. M. Veerappa Moily (Union Minister for Petroleum & Natural Gas, Environment and Forests), Shri. V Narayanasamy (Minister of State, Parliamentary Affairs, Prime Minister's Office, Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions) and Shri. Montek Singh Ahluwalia (Deputy Chairman, Planning Commission, Govt. of India). Today, these awards are considered amongst the most prestigious in India, and have moved into their 6th year.
